The challenge has the potential to create a project that results in some demonstrable output by April 2022 (report, new product, event, demonstration, toolkit, etc.)
The project is of appropriate scope (4-5 students committing ~8-10 hours per week for 6 months).
Topic of the challenge is in agri-food and relates to the following goals and objectives:
Global scale – to transform agriculture’s impact on biodiversity Landscape scale – to sustainably intensify food production Micro-scale – to enhance food safety and livestock health
The partner organization has a “point-person” who is interested and dedicated to working closely with the student team. This person will be able to commit to regular check-ins with student team, and with the AFI Education Coordinator.
